Stonework in Ichijodani Asakura Clan Ruins Fukui City

National-designated special historical site

Around Ichijodani area remain about as many as 6,000 Buddha images and stone pagodas made of Shakudani stones produced in the Age of Warring States, whose number has no parallel nationwide. Delicate and graceful facial expressions of many Stone Buddha images that remain in the ruins of Nishiyama Koushoji temple, Seigenji temple, etc. tell us deep faith of the people in those days.
